As a tribute to her daddy, Cindy Floyd Dean wrote on May 31, 2019, In the Middle of the night, when everything is quiet, I watch my frail Daddy breathe.  He's put up a fight, with all of his might, but I know he's about to leave.  He's Heaven Bound, where my Mom will be found, and all those who have gone on before.  His pain will be gone, and it won't be that long, til his feet will be on Heaven's shore.  I will miss him so much, his smile and his touch, but a peace I do have within.  For I know when it's time, I'll write no more rhymes, and I know I will see them again.
